Trump lashes back at Nebraska Sen. Sasse after criticism

"I applaud him for standing up to China but, frankly, this idea that China is paying the price and we're not paying the price here at home is just not true", Cornyn said.

In a stinging rebuke of President Trump, Sen.

Sasse began his list with, "The way he kisses dictators' butts", and said Trump "hasn't lifted a finger" on behalf of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, anxious that a "blue tsunami" could wipe out the Republican senate majority, laid into President Trump this week, calling him a narcissist who kisses dictators' butts and sells out the US' allies.

Trump is presumably responding, in this case, to explosive headlines following Ben Sasse's phone call with constituents.

"I've said this a million times over the years: When we agree, the President and I work together - on stuff like Judge Amy Coney Barrett who is a total rock star". I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang.

President Donald Trump speaks during an event on "Protecting America's Seniors", Friday, Oct. 16, 2020, in Fort Myers, Fla.

"The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor".

Sasse, who is running for a second term representing the reliably red state, made the comments in response to a question about why he has been willing to publicly criticize a president of his own party.

"He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors", Sasse said, referring to Trump. Must feel he can't lose to a Dem. Ben Sasse of Nebraska said it will be hard for the GOP to revive the party's brand after "selling a TV-obsessed, narcissistic individual to the American people". "Other than that, he's just a wonderful guy!" "He's flirted with White supremacists".

Cornyn pointed to former Senator Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) who decided not to run for re-election in 2018 after public disagreements with the president over issues such as a border wall between the US and Mexico led him to become a frequent subject of Trump's tweets.

Sasse told his supporters he was anxious that Trump and his "stupid political obsessions" threatened to drive young people to the Democratic Party "because they've just been repulsed by the obsessive nature of our politics", saying Nebraskans had told him "they don't really want more rage tweeting as a new form of entertainment". He also accuses Trump of having 'treated the presidency like a business opportunity'.
